Other News

We have been working and looking at trying to bring back in to production the Gem LNWR 6 Wheel Brake Van, but on reading on the LNWR forum, it would appear that modellers on there have some opinions that this model is wrong, would these modellers please get in touch with us by the contact page and be helpful to use and if you have pictures/drawings that you could email to us that would be most helpful.

Work is still taking place on the Cardeen we are hoping to have this back in to production in the early part of next year 2015. Keep checking back for further updates on this model and other news. Also don't forget to look at our facebook page as news is also posted on there as well as here.

OO Gauge


OO Scale OO gauge or OO scale (also spelled 00 gauge and 00 scale) model railways are the most popular standard-gauge model railway tracks in the U.K. This track gauge is one of several 4mm-scale standards (4 mm:foot / 304.8 mm or 1:76.2) used, but it is the only one to be served by the major manufacturers. Despite this, the OO track gauge of 16.5 mm (0.650 in) is inaccurate for 4mm scale, and other gauges of the same scale have arisen to better serve the desires of some modellers for greater scale accuracy.

 


N Gauge


N Scale N scale is a popular model railway scale/track gauge. Depending upon the manufacturer (or country), the scale ranges from 1:148 to 1:160. In all cases, the gauge (the distance between the rails) is 9 mm (0.354 in). The term N gauge refers to the track dimensions, but in the UK in particular N gauge refers to a 1:148 scale with 9 mm (0.354 in) track gauge modelling. The terms N scale and N gauge are often used interchangeably. An advantage of N scale is that it allows hobbyists to build layouts that take up less space than HO scale, or put longer track runs into the same amount of space, because the models are smaller (by nearly a half) than they are in HO scale (1:87).
